The Sunday Summary: The gaps, networks, scripts, and adversarial interoperability

In an effort to help me keep up with everything I post each week, here is my latest “Sunday Summary” of my posts from the week.

Mon, November 27: Google Tasks is finally decent
Google Tasks is not the best task management software around, and probably never will be, but it’s grown to the point where it might be a good solution for some folks (including me).

Tue, November 28: Writing exposes your gaps
Gaps in knowledge can often be difficult to find, but writing is a great way to bring them to the surface.

Wed, November 29: Network is a noun
I’m not a big fan of “networking”, but I certainly enjoy having a powerful and friendly “network”. Here’s how those two words work together.

Thu, November 30: Know enough to find the gaps
While writing can expose your gaps, as I shared a few days prior, you need to know enough about any given subject to be able to see where a gap might be hiding.

Fri, December 1: Sticking to the script
It’s often too easy to let clients in that aren’t a good fit, just to make a sale. While there might be a time for that, being aware of that tendency can help avoid it quite a bit.

Sat, December 2: Adversarial Interoperability
It’s a big set of words, but a fascinating concept, and I’m glad that so many of the products I use allow for this to happen (whether they want it to or not).

I hope you found some value in this. If you ever have questions, ideas, or disagreements regarding anything I write, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
